MMC Releases Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Toolkit to Assist Suburban Officials with Collaboration
The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus released a web toolkit for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to help suburban officials collaborate on DEI across town boundaries. Over the last two years, the Caucus has established an inter-jurisdictional learning network for DEI through a working group, website, and pilot program taught by the UIC Great Cities institute.
The toolkit, available at http://dei.mayorscaucus.org, helps individual communities understand how to integratediversity and equity into service delivery, external engagement, internal administration, and other functions of day-to-day government.
The toolkit represents a first-in-the-region resource to help municipalities develop homegrown approaches to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Each participating municipality has its own unique history, demographic characteristics, and socio-economic profile. The MMC toolkit profiles all approaches. Regardless of the specific local need, this toolkit has case studies or practices that many other towns can utilize.
